Tips for fussy eaters

Serve the components separately and let them build their own pittas.

Pro tip

The longer you knead the mince meat mixture, the more tender your koftas will become. They'll also stick together better!

Before you start

Please wash your hands and rinse all fresh fruits and vegetables prior to cooking.
